Description

[0001]
TECHNICAL FIELD OF THE INVENTION
The present invention relates to a menu display device, a program, and a recording medium, and more particularly, to a technique for supporting a menu operation displayed on a screen in a processing device such as a projector.
[0002]
[Prior art]
Conventionally, in a structure in which information is hierarchically assembled, there are a plurality of selection items as a second hierarchy for each of a plurality of selection items in a first hierarchy, which are connected to a third hierarchy and a fourth hierarchy. It has a structure.
When displaying information having such a hierarchical structure as a menu on the screen, when one menu item is selected by the cursor, a submenu of a lower hierarchy of the item is displayed, and information of a plurality of hierarchies is simultaneously displayed. There is a display that can be easily moved between layers by displaying it on a screen.
[0003]
However, although the lower layer information of only the selection item selected by the cursor is displayed, the lower layer information of other selection items cannot be confirmed. In addition, there is a problem that, although the next lower hierarchy can be displayed, the lower hierarchy cannot be displayed at the same time.
[0004]
In order to solve this problem, in the technique of “Information display method and recording medium recording information display program” in Patent Document 1, each selection item selected in each hierarchy is given an individual symbol, In the selection item of the hierarchy, at least the symbol of the selection item and the symbol of the selection item set in the lower hierarchy are displayed, and the selection content of any selection item is set to the setting of another selection item. Is related to the setting of another selection item, the selection content of an arbitrary selection item is changed.
[0005]
As described above, by adding the information indicating the selection status of the lower hierarchy to the selection items of the higher hierarchy and presenting it, the user can efficiently grasp the setting status of the lower hierarchy.
[0006]
In addition, users often process a large amount of data information in an information processing system, but a series of tasks such as inputting data, opening and closing dialogs, selecting items, etc. are required until the processing of certain information is completed. There are many routine tasks that repeat similar tasks.
[0007]
Therefore, in a user interface of such an information processing system, all items prepared in advance in the system are displayed on a user interface screen, and only necessary items are selected and set by the user.
[0008]
By the way, when viewed from an individual user, the selection setting operation is rarely performed for all the items displayed on the user interface screen, and the information processing is performed by performing the necessary selection setting operation only for some of the items. Many.
Therefore, in the user interface of the information processing system, there is a problem that it takes time to select and set only necessary items and is troublesome. In particular, there is a problem that it is extremely troublesome and inefficient when the selection target item extends over a plurality of screens, when only some of the setting items are changed, or when the same routine work is repeated.
[0009]
In order to solve this problem, in "User Interface Customizing Method and Apparatus" of Patent Document 2, only the items selected by the user as necessary items among the items prepared in the system are stored, and thereafter, the A screen composed of the stored items is displayed as a user interface screen unique to the user, and items determined to be unnecessary for the user are not displayed.
[0010]
As a result, once an item necessary for performing a certain process is selected and set, a user interface screen including only the necessary item is displayed, and the necessary item can be reconfirmed or changed here. Prior to executing the unique information processing, the user can efficiently select and set necessary items by an extremely simple operation.
[0011]

[Problems to be solved by the invention]
On the other hand, in a processing device having a screen display function such as a projector, the appearance of a projected image is affected by the surrounding brightness. Therefore, in order to obtain the best image quality, it is necessary to adjust the image quality every time the environment such as ambient brightness changes.
Some projectors display an operation menu such as various settings on a screen (see FIG. 7). In such an apparatus, there are some apparatuses that prepare various types of pages and items in a menu and separately display various setting values in a list.
[0013]
In response to such a request, in the technique of Patent Literature 1, what is displayed as a list in the menu is only what the current option is, and information on how the user has changed the setting is displayed. Is not included.
[0014]
Further, in the technique of Patent Document 2, the structure of the user interface screen is changed to reflect the operation of the user, and thus there is a problem that the user's operation of the user interface screen may be confused.
[0015]
Therefore, in the conventional setting value list display screen, since only the setting values of the items are displayed in a list, the user has no choice but to perform image quality adjustment depending on the projected image. Since it is not known how to change the settings, there is a problem in that when the settings are to be returned to the original state, the settings have to be memorized by themselves, or the records must be recorded one by one.
[0016]
The present invention has been made in consideration of the above-described circumstances, and allows the user to check at a glance the changed items and setting values, and to determine which item of the image quality adjustment should be adjusted. It is an object of the present invention to provide a menu display device, a program, and a recording medium that can be used.
[0017]
[Means for Solving the Problems]
In order to solve the above-mentioned problem, the present invention is configured as follows.
The menu display device includes a display unit for displaying a list of a plurality of items including image quality adjustment of the display device and their set values as a menu, selecting an item in the list display, and instructing to change the set value of the item. And illuminance / chromaticity detecting means for detecting the illuminance and chromaticity of the display device when each of the items is set to the current set value.
When the display unit displays a list of set values, the item changed by the input unit is displayed in a different color from the other items that have not been changed, and the illuminance detected by the illuminance / chromaticity detection unit is The chromaticity is also displayed, so that the user can see at a glance which item has been changed and make it easier to understand which item should be changed.
[0018]
In addition, the set value before change and the set value after change (current set value) are displayed together to make it easy to understand which item has been changed to what set value.
[0019]
Further, each time a setting operation is performed, storage means for storing, as an operation history, changed items, set values thereof, and illuminance and chromaticity detected by the illuminance / chromaticity detection means, and a past operation history from the storage means. A list of illuminance and chromaticity stored in is displayed, and an illuminance / chromaticity selecting unit for selecting a desired illuminance and chromaticity from the list is provided. The set value of the item which is a degree is taken out from the storage means and set as the current set value on the display device.
This makes it possible to refer to the past operation history and call out the set values in an environment close to the current environment, thereby supporting optimal image quality adjustment for the user.
[0020]
Further, the function of the menu display device may be a program, and a computer-readable recording medium for recording the program may be provided.

When the user designates a specific key input or display of a set value list from the input device 5, the information processing device 1 determines that there is no item whose setting has been changed at that time, and displays the set value list screen as shown in FIG. While being displayed on the output device 6, one initialized record is written to the item list 7 in the database 4 as the first operation history. The illuminance / chromaticity values at this time are the illuminance / chromaticity values detected by the illuminance / chromaticity detection device 37 when all the items are set to the initial values.
[0027]
FIG. 4 is an example of a set value list screen displayed on the output device 6 after changing the set value of the item.
In this case, when the user changes the setting value of the item in the menu by using the input device 5, the value of the item whose setting has been changed is changed to the current value as the operation history, and the value of the other unchanged item remains unchanged. At this time, one record made by the illuminance / chromaticity detected by the illuminance / chromaticity detection device 37 is written to the item list 7 in the database 4.
Based on the newly set information, a menu in which the changed items are configured in a different color from the other items is displayed on the output device 6 as a set value list screen (see FIG. 4).
[0028]

FIG. 5 is another example of the set value list screen displayed as a menu on the output device 6 after changing the set value of the item, in which the value before the change and the value after the change are displayed. It is.
In FIG. 5, when the value of the item Bright (16 in FIG. 5) is changed from 0 to 10, the item Bright whose setting has been changed is displayed in a different color from the other items, and the setting has been changed. The set value before the change of the item (17 in FIG. 5) and the set value after the change (current set value) (18 in FIG. 5) are displayed.
[0030]
Next, a case will be described in which illuminance and chromaticity stored in the past are selected, and the set value of each item at that time is set as the current set value.
In this case, when the user instructs the list display of the setting history of the illuminance / chromaticity by the input device 5, all the items having different values of the illuminance / chromaticity in the item list 7 in the database 4 are extracted and listed. The list is displayed on the output device 6 as a menu.
[0031]
FIG. 6 is a display example in which illuminance and chromaticity set in the past are extracted from the operation history recorded in the database 4 and listed.
In FIG. 6, reference numerals 41 to 46 denote illuminance and chromaticity stored in the item list 7 in the database 4 in the past. 41 is the oldest operation history value, and 46 is the display of the current illuminance and chromaticity values.
[0032]
The user refers to the image quality displayed on the output device 6 and the current illuminance and chromaticity on the menu, and selects, from the past illuminance and chromaticity on the menu, one closer to a desired value by the input device 5. I do.
The setting value of each item corresponding to the illuminance and chromaticity at the selected menu position is extracted from the item list 7 in the database 4, and the value is reflected on the output device 6 as the current setting value. The current value is written to the item list in the database 4 and also as an operation history.
